      Yes you, and how is that a bad thing? Why would you want to look old?

      i'm nearing the 30 mark, any discussion of age is becoming a bad thing.

      thanks though! i don't get people guessing low on my age since i started shaving my head. a lot of people assume i'm going bald and trying to hide it.

      Good evening, kids.

      I'm working on a non-Scirocco technical problem. Still German, though:

      The slide sticks on the 22LR kit. I think I narrowed it down to the recoil spring hanging up on the spring guide. The one on the 22 kit is plastic and there's a lot of slag on it. I'm smoothing it with sandpaper now.

      Unfortunately, I have to make a trip to the range to test it again.

      And don't say it can't be done - I got a kit in my old MkI. And my drummer was a Neal Peart wannabe - glock, chimes, chinese bells, more toms than most small zulu tribes, the whole nine yards.

      It's been 15 hours since my last Scirocco drive. I can feel the darkness closing in.

      I need to go for a drive.

      This, my friend, is easily corrected. For those times when Scirocco driving is just not an option, something with a prop and wings works just fine.

      Anyway, Hi, my name is Cathy. I'm got roped into this mess because I own a Ford pickup truck. 1988 F150. And 99 New Beetle TDI. And I had Cafeteria supervision duty with the auto shop teacher who is a previous 16V owner.
      See, I took the truck to a local truck show, where there was a New Beetle parked out front. This after I was telling the shop teacher (during cafeteria supervision) that I'd been looking for a VR Golf for hubby to drag race. Anyway, on this NewBug was a flyer for this little hole in the wall VW show at a small dealership...so I went to THAT with the bug, and what was on a sticky note on the dealer's corkboard? Yep, the words that sealed my fate: For Sale 1987 16V Scirocco.

      The kids:

      L-R: The silver Headache 1987 16V, 2L, and all the trimmings, next is Lowell Snow's Cabrio Conversion, the 'vert, PPL EATR, etc...1986 16V 1.8L and then my Klausie 1979 ABA over JH Frankenbuild Turbo beastie...

      Here's how to answer when someone asks how old you are. Lie UP about seven years. If you are twenty-eight, tell'm you're thirty-five. If you are forty-five (like me), tell'm you're fifty-two. They will walk away thinking how great you look for your age. If you lie and tell'm you are younger, they will walk away thinking "that poor bastard looks like sh!t".

      So a husband is driving with his wife down the highway when a state trooper pulls them over. Trooper comes to the driver's window and asks the husband "do you know why I pulled you over?" Husband reply's "no officer, I have no idea." Trooper says, "Well I clocked you doing 90 miles per hour." "That's impossible, I set the cruise control at 55 as soon as I got on the highway." The wife chimes in from the passenger seat "You always drive at least 90!" Husband turns to his wife and starts cursing at her to shut up and that she is not helping. Trooper says "I also noticed you weren't wearing your seat belt." "Officer, I took it off when I saw you walking up to the car." Wife "You NEVER wear your seat belt. You think it's stupid." Husband laces into his wife again. Trooper leans past the husband and asks the wife "does he always talk to you like this?" Wife "why no officer, only when he has been drinking."

      #1 set up some boards in your driveway

      #2 get your loudest nail gun and loudest compressor and start slammin nails into the boards for about an hour to get the neighbors used to the noise.


      #3 fill a trash can full of sand, take the lid and cut an access hole in it.

      #4 shoot a round into the trash can preferably when the compressor is refilling itself.


      your neighbors will never know.

      A year after his divorce, the man is again pulled over for doing 90. This officer is in a playing mood, and makes the following offer: "Son, I've heard every excuse for speeding. If you can make an excuse I've never heard, I'll let you go". The man ponders for a moment, and finally says: "Officer, about a year ago, my wife left me for a policeman". The officer asks: "So?"

      "Well," the man retorts, "I thought it was you trying to bring her back to me". The officer says: "Have a nice day. Drive Carefully".

      Just saw this thread...so I thought I'd say my hello's as well.

      Hi! I'm mrs lee and no, I'm not asian.

      Own a scirocco by marriage and am the proud owner of an 87 cabby (Belinda)...they share a Bently...so close enough, right?

      Nice to meet everyone (that I haven't already met).

      I just don't changed my avatar. I thought I'd warn everybody, so they don't get freaked out.

      I'm also having a really hard time tuning the A/F ratio on my car. With a multimeter plugged in, I adjust the C/O screw and nothing happens to the duty % anymore

      The slide sticks on the 22LR kit. I think I narrowed it down to the recoil spring hanging up on the spring guide. The one on the 22 kit is plastic and there's a lot of slag on it. I'm smoothing it with sandpaper now.

      Unfortunately, I have to make a trip to the range to test it again.


      Hei Jim, I told Rob about your Sig problem. He suggested that you may need a stronger spring because of the pulse. Also try a high velocity ammo to see if that makes a difference.

      Enjoy your time at the range...it's been WAAAY too long since I've gone shooting.

      A year after his divorce, the man is again pulled over for doing 90. This officer is in a playing mood, and makes the following offer: "Son, I've heard every excuse for speeding. If you can make an excuse I've never heard, I'll let you go". The man ponders for a moment, and finally says: "Officer, about a year ago, my wife left me for a policeman". The officer asks: "So?"

      "Well," the man retorts, "I thought it was you trying to bring her back to me". The officer says: "Have a nice day. Drive Carefully".

      A guy is walking down the street on the outside of a tall wall. He can hear someone on the other side saying "14, 14, 14, 14..." He is wondering what is on the other side and keeps hearing the "14." He thinks to himself that maybe it's a mental institution and still hears the "14, 14." As we walks along he see a small hole in the wall and decides to take a peek. All of a sudden a finger pokes him and the eye and from the other side he hears "15, 15, 15."
